AFTER HAVING CHILDREN, YOUR BODY MAY NOT RETURN TO ITS PRE-PREGNANCY WEIGHT AND FIRMNESS.
The physical changes of pregnancy and a growing baby may leave your body with loose skin, sagging breasts, unsightly fatty deposits, or split abdominal muscles. You may feel you can no longer wear certain clothing, or you feel self-conscious revealing your tummy or thighs at the beach or pool.
The professionals at Advanced Skin Care, Dermatology, and Plastic Surgery understand your frustrations and are here to help you restore a firm, taut body contour. A Mommy Makeover is a combination of three procedures in one surgery session to restore the look of your pre-pregnancy body.
WHAT IS A MOMMY MAKEOVER?
Our knowledgeable and experienced plastic surgeons perform three procedures to target the areas of your body that have suffered from pregnancy and childbirth. A Mommy Makeover often includes a breast lift, tummy tuck, and liposuction. Hormone and weight fluctuations during pregnancy lead to changes that diet and exercise may not be able to fix, despite your best efforts. A breast lift and tummy tuck will reduce excess skin and tissue, and restore a trimmer body contour. Liposuction may be employed to reduce areas of stubborn fat and to enhance the results of the other procedures.
You are a good candidate for a Mommy Makeover if you are self-conscious about your post-baby body and have been unable regain the trim, taut figure you had before your baby with diet and exercise alone. The procedure is ideal for mothers as combines three different surgical procedures, with less recovery time than undergoing three separate surgeries.
PROCEDURE STEPS AFTERCARE
The Mommy Makeover is performed under general anesthetic so you are comfortable during the procedure. Your makeover may involve:
- Tummy Tuck. Perhaps the most sought-after procedure for women who’ve had children, a tummy tuck removes excess skin, fat, and tissue, and repairs split abdominal muscles. An incision is made just above the pubic bone in an area that can be covered by most clothing or bathing suits after healing. Our surgeon will pull your muscles tight and secure them, providing long-lasting results. Then the excess skin is trimmed and the incision is closed. As excess skin is trimmed, many stretchmarks may be eliminated in this part of the procedure.
- Breast Lift. There are a few different incision patterns for breast lifts, and our physician choose the most effective method for the current condition of your breasts. Most commonly, an incision is made from the nipple down to the breast crease and along the breast crease. Extra tissue and skin are removed and the incision is closed, so your breasts sit higher on your chest, with a plumper, more youthful look. If you also wish to enlarge your breasts, a breast augmentation can be performed in the same surgery.
- Liposuction. Pockets of unwanted fat can be removed with liposuction to enhance your results. Narrowing the waist can complement your restored breasts and the restored tummy area. Fat can also be removed from your thighs, arms, or “love handles.”
Our accomplished plastic surgeons will provide you with complete aftercare instructions, and a prescription for painkillers and antibiotics. The recovery is very important to the overall success of your procedure, and all post-operative instructions should be followed carefully.
